The change-ready network

The link between core services and business agility

It’s never been this hard to manage a network

Not that long ago, reliable and secure global connectivity—between data centers, clouds, and branches across every device and location—was a big competitive advantage.

Now it’s an essential business requirement.

Today, networks evolve fast. Huge feats of engineering expertise are quickly metabolized into baseline expectations, and soon replaced by ambitious new requirements.

And if you manage a network, you know this better than anyone: The appetite for change is moving faster than the capacity to deliver it.

The change capacity of your business is capped by the change capacity of your network

Here’s the problem.

The world—your users, your market, and your business—has internalized reliable, secure, and ubiquitous network connectivity as a solved issue.

But legacy DNS, DHCP, and IP address management (together known as DDI) services can barely keep up with baseline daily requirements—let alone new transformation initiatives like remote work, cloud adoption, IoT, SASE, or SD-WAN.

While the change environment is accelerating, there’s an avalanche of obstructive complexity in your DDI environment.

We call this disconnect the modernization gap.

Closing the modernization gap

The modernization gap has two main causes.

First, the legacy—and often native—DDI solutions your business started with have fallen way behind the business you’ve become.

Second, as your network requirements have increased, the teams that manage, secure, and build on the network have diverged. Network, security, cloud, and DevOps teams work in different systems, use different data, and pursue different—and sometimes competing—objectives.

To close the modernization gap you need two things:

A consolidated and automated DDI system

Unified core services that drive more performance, reliability, and security across the network with less manual work

Shared capabilities for everyone touching the network

To help network, security, and cloud teams break out of silos and form one group with shared goals and a coherent view of the environment
